Are you secretly questioning your participation in organized religion? Do you enjoy the fellowship and social connections you get from church, but think privately to yourself that many things the Bible and the church say you must believe in are farfetched and don’t quite make sense? A lot of us started out just like you. We are Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers, the west slope’s first secular advocacy and community group. Come to one of our meetings to chat, ask questions or just listen in. One thing we can guarantee you is that WE WILL MAKE SENSE!

ABOUT US: Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers (WCAF) was organized in February, 2007 in Grand Junction, to add a long-missing secular voice to the community dialogue in western Colorado. Our goals are to inform and educate the public in Western Colorado about atheism, promote atheism through appropriate public and community activities, actively preserve and promote the wall of separation of religion and government and promote acceptance of atheism as a valid, rational belief system. WCAF also provides western Colorado atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and humanists a way to connect with each other, share information, enjoy social activities, develop new friendships and enjoy freethinking conversation. We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit group, and all donations to WCAF are tax deductible. Come join us!

George Carlin once said "I've begun worshipping the Sun for a number of reasons. First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the Sun. It's there for me every day. And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time: heat, light, food, a lovely day. There's no mystery, no one asks for money, I don't have to dress up, and there's no boring pageantry. And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to God are all answered at about the same 50-percent rate." (from George Carlin, Brain Droppings)
